“After Dr. Dietrich x-rayed and denoted a weak spot on the upper femur (left leg) due to the lack of a medical personnel warning of overuse of Alendrenol, I was preparing for surgery to bridge the weak spot the following day. However the next morning the femur broke, throwing the hip entirely out of joint. Thru extreme pain and agony, I was transported to St. Joe's and Dr. Dietrich fixed it all. Being an 81-year-old woman the recovery was a bit more extended necessitating a 31 day stay in the "Advanced Health Care" facility. This facility is beyond compare as to the decor, nursing staff, food, and therapy group. I am at home now and hopefully on the road to complete repair. Thanks to Dr. Dietrich.”
– Doothy S.
“My experience with Dr. Dietrich was an excellent experience. He explains all possibilities before possible surgery. Being from Washington, I was pleased that many people I knew felt I was in good hands with Dr. Dietrich. I am looking forward to taking all suggestion of pain solution before seeking surgery. But I fully understand the surgery procedure if this becomes an option for me. He had a visual cervical spine and was able to explain to both my husband and me. Trust is essential.”
– Virginia J.

– Al B.
“I had been dealing with sciatic nerve since October, shots didn't help. Dr. Dietrich got me right into surgery, and I have been free of pain ever since. Thank you! My experience was excellent from start to finish. All of the people in the office to the surgery center were exceptional!”
– Lesha L.
“Dr. Dietrich, his PA and all of the staff were remarkable. They took excellent care of me during the entire process.”
– Kevin D.
“I was immediately comfortable with Dr. Dietrich. He has a great sense of humor, and he explained my surgery very well and answered every question and concern I had. When I was running a fever and vomiting the night after my surgery, we called the on-call nurse, who phoned Dr. Dietrich. Dr. Dietrich immediately called us. After learning what exactly was going on, he reassured us everything was fine, called me in a prescription for the vomiting, and told me to come into the clinic Monday. He never sounded inconvenienced or irritated, but genuinely concerned and wanted to make sure we were doing okay before he hung up. All in all, I have had nothing but a great experience every time I've been to Lewiston Orthopaedics.”
– Ileah R.
“I felt very taken care of. I was having a lot of pain and surgery was going to be scheduled way out. I knew I couldn't make it that long and was pushy with staff to move up the appointment. They handled it well and eventually were able to find me an earlier appointment. I know they deal with lots of patients in my same situation but never made me feel like I was a bother, even when I was sobbing on the phone.”
– Heidi H.
“Dr. Dietrich was informative and explained all of the options. He was very friendly and his staff was great.”
– Robert C.
“This provider always goes out of his way to ensuring the best possible outcome post surgery.”
– John M.
“Dr. Dietrich is widely recognized as an unusually outstanding surgeon by his patients and colleagues. Luckily for me he became fully invested professionally, spiritually and personally in working to achieve the most desirable and achievable surgical results for me. Fortunately, Dr. Dietrich has completed 6 different surgical procedures for me over a 9 year period of time and I consider him a true friend. His incredibly skillful spinal repairs gave me back an active life style I thought had been lost. My gratitude must to be unlimited for it was Dr. Dietrich's professional judgement and subsequent surgeries that removed the sources of pain that made my life miserable and of no more seeming value. He seems to fully understand the torturous impact of pain and does his best before and after surgery to alleviate this suffering; even giving my wife and I his personal cellular telephone number. Over the course of our surgical experiences he has made at least 3 house calls and sent his Physician's Assistant and a Nurse to our home to attend to particular post-surgical issues. You may expect now that my maximum accolades for Dr. Dietrich would include the testimonial that my last, 7 hour, surgical experience with Dr. Dietrich was a resounding success to the maximum extent possible. This is true but a new ancillary problem has developed that looks as if it will need to be addressed surgically. I'm only hopeful he will again plan everything thoroughly and complete the surgery to his satisfaction. Finally, you must see the depth of my appreciation and understand that I'm incredibly grateful I can hopefully be blessed whenever necessary with the results of the outstanding surgical skills and services of Dr. Dietrich.”
